The Associate of Applied Science Degree prepares students for employment directly into the workforce of their chosen degree. A degree in business leads to careers in Accounting, Consulting, Commerce, Business Administration, e-Business or e-Commerce, Finance, Marketing and Management. Some people with a business administrative degree will choose to work in private retail or wholesale businesses while others will select government work. Fierce competition is expected for highly competitive and peak-earning positions such as management consultant or business analyst.
The AAS degree and accounting certificate are both designed to help students enter the workforce in an entry-level or a bookkeeping position. Students planning to complete a professional accounting certification, such as the CPA, must continue their education at a university after graduating from CAC. Students desiring to earn their bachelor’s degree in accounting should follow the Associate of Business (ABUS) degree track.
